Hack the planet with Cyber Protocol, out now on Switch

If you've ever wanted to be a fledgling hacker, now's your chance to try out the profession and see how it fits you.


Cyber Protocol is out on Switch today and if you like neon-tinted puzzlers, it'll be right up your alley. Your role as the hero has to hacking your Android buddy G0X6 in an attempt to bring him back to life after a job turned sour.

To save your friend, you'll have to hack your way through 100 levels. You can play either solo or with up to four other players. Besides the story there is an Arcade Mode which pits you against a leaderboard of the top 20 hackers in the world. The stakes are higher in this mode, and you'll have to think on your toes to live through your journey into cyberspace.

Cyber Protocol is the first game from studio RedDeerGames and its really gone all out to pack the game with as many features as it could. In addition to all the above, you can even jump into a music player and listen to the Synthwave and 8-Bit style soundtracks in your leisure time.

If all the above sounds great, then you can get Cyber Protocol on Nintendo Switch starting today. Until October 12, you can buy the game for a promo price of $7.77 and after that it'll be $9.99.
